League Secretary John Tuner said: “We are really encouraged by this change to the trend of the past few seasons. This is a tremendous boost for the League and extremely good news for grassroots football in the County and more widely. It gives us real confidence for the new season and we look forward to a competitive season with our considerably increased numbers.”
Chief Executive of Norfolk FA, Gavin Lemmon said: “It’s extremely pleasing to hear that Saturday football is on the rise in Norfolk. This is great news for the Central and South Norfolk League and early indications suggest growth in other Saturday leagues too.
"Our #NorfolkFootball For All Strategy aims to increase participation in all formats of football by 2021 and this type of news demonstrates a positive trend towards that aspiration.”
